Enhancing sustainability and well-being

in residential and urban spaces


Enhancing sustainability and well-being

in residential and urban spaces

Today’s urban planner faces

lighting demands undreamt

of even a decade ago. It is

no longer sufficient to provide

orientation with security after

dark. It is not even enough to

create an ambience that gives

a sense of well-being. We need

to deliver all these, but in an

environmentally friendly manner.

Stricter rules are being applied to

product design, use and disposal.

Older technologies are being

outlawed and obtrusive light

regulations tightened. We have

to minimise the carbon footprint

of a product and maximise

sustainability.

Clearly, a new creative approach

was needed; now it has arrived.

Plurio presents a portfolio of

decorative post-top lanterns and

columns which factor in:

Simple and friendly design

Their clean lines, colour and

contours, blend harmoniously with

most urban landscapes.

There are three styles, as shown

on the right. In each there are

choices of lamps, optics and

optical accessories.

Well being and lighting

performance

The universal shapes, combined

with an innovative high

performance optical system,

create a sense of space, safety

and well-being. There is a choice

of lamp types, including ‘white

light’ options, to suit differing

applications.

Environmental Integrity

The use of environmentally sound

materials; the design of the lantern

and its optics; and the volume

optimisation of the packaging

ensures that Plurio provides

minimal obtrusive light nuisance,

sustainable energy savings and

thus valuable reductions in CO 2

emissions.

Low cost of ownership

Designed from concept stage to

be easy to install and maintain,

the Plurio range represents

excellent value for money.

Performance, Efficiency and Comfort (PEC) –

for a better lit environment

Plurio evokes the spirit of Thorn Lighting’s dynamic,

results orientated PEC programme

The programme is based on

the principle that Performance,

Efficiency and Comfort determine

the effectiveness of lighting, its

impact on the people using it,

and its impact on the natural

environment. Plurio delivers the

right light on the right place

at the right time.

Performance: Providing the

best visual effectiveness

• Outstanding level of

illuminance, control and

uniformity of light = good

quality of light

• Excellent spacing between

lanterns

• No Glare

• Good colour rendering

Efficiency: Conserving energy

and effort, reducing CO 2

emissions and waste, providing

lighting that is practical and

efficient to install, operate and

maintain.

• Sustainable energy savings

• No obtrusive light

• Quick installation and

maintenance

Comfort: Giving people

satisfaction and stimulation

• Easy integration into

landscapes

• Creates a welcoming and safe

atmosphere

• Good colour appearance with

white light options

Effective, efficient and comfortable light

Innovative high performance optical system

engineered for improved visibility, reduced

glare and control of obtrusive light

Optical principle

• Internal facetted symmetrical

optic enhances downward

light, whilst controlling the

light distribution, for excellent

uniformity of illuminance,

no shadow effect at base

of column

1.5m

No glare

70˚

4m

• Oriented facets on the optic

avoids occulting, whereby the

central column can conceal

luminous rays from the lamp

• Clear polycarbonate bowl

with low angle prisms

eradicates glare

• Conforming to the British

Standard BS EN 13201-

2:2003, Plurio meets the class

G5 corresponding to a full

horizontal cut off preventing

upward light and even the

most stringent class G6 with

the ULOR 0% accessory.

• Additional accessories (ULOR,

lamp cowl and lampshield) for

increased control of glare and

reduced obtrusive light

No sky glow

For highly sensitive areas, where

absolute control of obtrusive light is

required, a ULOR 0%

accessory is available

• ULOR = 0% (< 0.49cd/1000 lm):

Plurio ULOR 0 version (facetted

optic + black socket cover)

• ULOR < 1%: Plurio with

facetted optics

• Obtrusive light control :

ULOR in line with E2* projects

compliance as a standard (E1

projects with ULOR 0% accessory)

*Environmental zones are stated by BS EN12193

and the ‘I.L.E Guidance Notes For The Reduction Of

Light Pollution’. These range from intrinsically dark

areas such as national parks (E1) to bright inner city

areas (E4). The lower the number the more restricted

the intensity of light and recommended lighting

level. Plurio has been designed as standard to meet

the ULOR requirements in term of E2 (low district

brightness areas e.g. rural or small villages) and with

the ULOR 0% accessory, the more stringent E1.

No light trespass

An easy to fit integral 120°

lampshield provides a cut-off

suitable for residential areas and

certain public spaces. Available

as an accessory.

Photometric performance

• LOR* up to 70%

• Intensity peak: 200 cd/1000lm at 65° angle

• Outstanding uniformity

*LOR - Light Output Ratio

7m

No glare

The bowl is cleverly designed

with prisms to prevent glare at

70° angle. If further visual

comfort is required, a 'cowl'

accessory can easily be fitted to

shield the lamp from direct view.

Sustainability

Plurio in action: fast payback - and better lighting too

Up to 72.5% energy savings!

Sustainability

Electric lighting in urban areas has a major impact on

sustainability. The key to sustainability in lighting is eco-design,

efficient operation and planned recycling at the end of the

product life.

Renovation project

Eco-design

Thorn employs life cycle assessments, as per the Energy-using Products

Directive (EuP), to check the environmental impact of its products

through life. This ensures that care is taken during design to employ,

absolutely, the minimum amount of restricted hazardous substances -

Plurio complies with the RoHS Directive - and that the minimum amount

of virgin materials, water and energy are used during manufacture.

Finally, Plurio’s light distribution is designed to reduce obtrusive light

and sky glow according to I.L.E recommendations.

Efficient operation

The generation of electrical energy required for lighting is a major

contributor to CO 2 emissions. For every kWh of energy 0.42 kg of CO 2

is liberated and added to the 'greenhouse' gases in the atmosphere,

increasing global warming.

The most energy consumption by the product is clearly during

operation, which can be influenced by prudent design and component

selection. For Plurio the key elements are high performance optics

employing modern light sources (no mercury types), electronic gear

and the option of mini photocells.

With efficient products, correct lighting scheme design and the use

of control systems substantial energy saving can be made without

jeopardising the quality of the required lighting condition.

The data for an S2 project clearly shows that for the same

illuminance (10 lux, average required) one Plurio lantern can replace

two opal globe lanterns. For a new lighting project, for instance a

pedestrian open zone as described on the former page, wider spacings

between the Plurio lanterns brings the benefits of enhanced accessibility

and less clutter in the public spaces, whilst retaining uniformity and

illumination levels. The resulting savings are shown below:

Quick and easy installation

and maintenance

The installation of Plurio lantern

(5 minutes) compared to

Sphere (15 minutes)

= 66% saving on costs/time

1. All in one box

2. No need for the installer to

move around the column to fix

and centre the lantern base

3. Foam filter to isolate base and

avoid condensation

4. Easy connection via terminal

block below gear casing

(no screwdriver required)

5. The gear is easily placed into

the base without need of extra

fixation (it will be retained by

the bowl/canopy in step 7)

6. Install the lamp and optional

accesory

7. Place the bowl/canopy over

the base and fix via 3 screws

using the same tool as used

for fixing the base. To fix

ULOR 0% or lamp shield

optional accessories, unscrew

the canopy from bowl and

place them tool free.
